Duffy, but the referee was not interested, d from miaowang123's blog

MILWAUKEE -- NBA Hall of Famer Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is interested in returning in some capacity to the Milwaukee Bucks. Brice Butler Cardinals Jersey . "If I get a call, I will definitely offer my services," said Abdul-Jabbar, the franchises career leading scorer with 14,211 points. "Theres nothing on the table right now. A couple of people have asked me and if I had the chance to be part of this franchise again, I would take it." In December, former Sen. Herb Kohl announced he would seek minority investors in the team, which he has owned since 1985. The franchise is at something of a crossroads, struggling to draw large crowds to an aging building. The Bucks beat Utah 114-88 on Monday, but have the leagues worst record at 12-47. Still, Abdul-Jabbar sees Milwaukee as a viable NBA market. "They have to get their business model right," Abdul-Jabbar said Monday. "I hope that the Bucks are able to sort it all out and get on a good footing. You cant win it all unless you get the right players and you cant get the right players unless youre really in a good position as a business." Abdul-Jabbar was in town in part to promote a new tourism ad for the state of Wisconsin that played off his acting role in the movie "Airplane." Over the last few years, Abdul-Jabbar has expressed an interest in returning to the NBA as a coach. Hes worked as a special assistant with teams such as the Clippers and Lakers. Abdul-Jabbar -- then Lew Alcindor -- was the No. 1 overall pick in the 1969 NBA draft and immediately turned the Bucks, coming off their expansion season, into contenders. Milwaukee went 56-26 and finished second in the Eastern Division behind Abdul-Jabbars 28.8 points and 14.5 rebounds per game. Not long after the season ended, the Bucks obtained Oscar Robertson from the Cincinnati Royals, leading to a dominant 1970-71 season. They finished with a 66-16 record and swept Baltimore in the NBA Finals, becoming the fastest expansion franchise to win a championship in the history of major professional sports. The Bucks returned to the Finals in 1974, losing to Boston in seven games. Robertson would retire just before the 74-75 season and Abdul-Jabbar quietly requested a trade, looking for a bigger market and the chance to join another contender. "They appreciated that and they appreciated that I kept my mouth shut about it," he said. "I gave them the opportunity to approach other teams and they figured out the best deal they could make for themselves." Abdul-Jabbar got his wish in June 1975, when he was shipped to the Lakers in a deal that included Junior Bridgeman going to Milwaukee. Both players have had their jerseys retired by the franchise. Bridgeman, who was honoured by the team last week, also has been mentioned as a possible investor. Andre Smith Jersey .35 million, avoiding arbitration.

He earned $3. Christian Kirk Cardinals Jersey .com) - The Dallas Mavericks had a five-game winning streak snapped last time out, but theyll try to get back into the winners circle Sunday evening when the Milwaukee Bucks pay a visit to American Airlines Center.Steve Sidwell scored a stunning 50-yard goal as Brighton beat Bristol City 2-0 at Ashton Gate in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday evening. Jamie Murphy doubled the lead with a deflected effort as Chris Hughtons men won their fourth game in a row and made it four matches without conceding in a clash which will be remembered for the audacious strike by Sidwell. The result keeps the Seagulls in second place, four points behind Newcastle - who beat Cardiff 2-1 earlier in the day to maintain their lead at the top - and also means they are unbeaten in their last 10 league games. It was a frantic opening five minutes to the game, with Tammy Abraham posing the most danger with his pace and movement and the on-loan Chelsea star played a wonderful reverse pass into the path of Lee Tomlin, but he was unable to make the most of it and blasted wide. Brightons Steve Sidwell scored from the halfway line to opening the scoring against Bristol City Brighton eventually settled into the game, but it was still the Robins controlling possession, former Middlesbrough star Gary ONeil dictating proceedings in the middle of the park.But, when Korey Smith lost the ball just near the halfway line, Sidwell produced a moment of magic to put Brighton into a 13th-minute lead after winning back possession, he looked up and hit a left-footed strike past a stranded Richard ODonnell, who was well of his line for his first goal since April.The 33-year-old, formerly of Reading, Chelsea and Aston Villa, then ran to the sidelines with his team-mates to celebrate by holding up the shirt of the absent Anthony Knockaert, who was grieving following the death of his father.Despite their bright start, Bristol City were rocked by that goal and failed to recover sufficiently and several minutes later found themselves two-down courtesy of a Murphy strike. Bristol City manager Lee Johnson was critical of the way his side performed The Scotland winger - who was causing all sorts of problems on the wing - cut in from the left and after feigning to shoot, eventually did and found the bottom corner via a deflection to give Brighton complete control. Chad Williams Jersey. Knowing they needed to improve, Bristol City came out, determined to reduce the deficit and get back into the game, but Hordur Magnusson wasted an opportunity when he headed right into the arms of David Stockdale. Down the other end, Brighton were still hoping to increase their own advantage and Glenn Murray - who was leading the line well - turned superbly before finding Jiri Skalak, who could only hit a stinging drive to warm the palms of ODonnell.Veteran forward Aaron Wilbraham came on to offer some much needed support to Abraham and there was a moment of worry for Bristol City, when ONeil went down momentarily after taking a high boot to the jaw. Brighton manager Chris Hughton praised the dominant nature of his sides victory The introduction of Wilbraham was giving the Brighton defence something different to think about and he should have been awarded a penalty after he was clearly fouled by defender Shane Duffy, but the referee was not interested, despite the strikers protests.Substitute Tomer Hemed ignored the calls of his colleagues and blasted one final effort high into the stands, but it did not matter as Brighton left with the victory and Bristol City slipped out of the play-off places. Brighton vs A Villa November 18, 2016, 7:00pm Live on Get Sky Sports Get a Sky Sports pass Following the match, Brighton boss Hughton told Sky Sports that Sidwells strike had settled his sides nerves.It was one of those strikes, where as soon as he hit it, I knew it was in. It was a difficult one for the goalkeeper because it was unexpected and it was with his left foot.A wonderful opener for us and as I said, any nerves we might have had, it calmed us down.Youth NFL Jerseys Cheap Disocunt Football Jerseys China Jerseys Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping China NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Wholesale ' ' '
